I recently received some products from Nivea’s new Q10 body firming range and I was just thrilled because I had been wanting to try them for quite some time. Nivea products are a household name in South Africa. They’re known to be well priced but not compromising on quality, and this new range does not disappoint!
The new powerful NIVEA Q10 formulas include firming lotions, oils and gel creams which are formulated to make your skin firmer within two weeks! So what’s the hype – I know we have all heard about body firming products before and maybe approach them with skepticism. But I’m here to tell you to give these products a try- you could be pleasantly surprised.
What is Q10?
Q10 is a natural component of your skin which actively works to keep it firm; however levels of Q10 decrease with age and the skin becomes less able to renew itself. Nivea Firming Body Lotion enriches the natural levels of Q10 which empowers your skin with the energy and strength it needs to remain toned and supple.
Body Firming Lotion (R79,99 for 250ml at Clicks)
My first thoughts on the lotion is that it is thick and has a nice, light scent. (I find it clean and enjoyable and not overpowering – quite classic Nivea!) It really hydrates the skin and my skin felt incredibly soft for the entire day. All the products absorb really well and have a long lasting effect.
Something that I always like about Nivea’s products is the lovely packaging and feel of the products. Often you can find on their products on a 3 for 2 special at Clicks which is a major bonus!
My favorite body firming product?
It has to be the Q10 Plus Body Firming Oil. Nivea made the product to boosts firmness and improves elasticity, and also improves skin imperfections such as stretch marks. This product is amazing and it’s “absorbability factor” is 5 stars. Just a few rubs and its completely absorbed by your skin, leaving it soft and supple. It also doesn’t leave your hands and everything else feeling oily, which is a major bonus! This multipurpose oil can be used all over the body to firm and care for the skin, improving its natural beauty. Because of how hydrating it is, I think this would be a great addition to your summer holiday luggage, as it will keep your skin soft during all the sun exposure.
So do these body firming products work?
After using the products for about two weeks, I started to notice a difference in the firmness of my skin and a lesser appearance of cellulite. I took some photos before I started using this product and I honestly saw an improvement in my thigh area within a few weeks of use. In addition, the fact that it is an inexpensive brand is an absolute bonus! It’s light, creamy and absorbs well; the scent is fresh and not overpowering at all. I would highly recommend trying this product out, I don’t think you will be disappointed!
P.s Nivea also have a lovely new range ‘Nivea Perfect and Radiant’. You can read my review on their fantastic miscellar water here.
